Internet Safety Tips

  • NEVER give out personal information such as your name, home address, school name, or telephone number in a chat room or on bulletin boards.  Also, never send a picture of yourself to someone you chat with on the computer without your parents permission.

    NEVER write to someone who has made you feel uncomfortable or scared.

    DO NOT meet someone or have them visit you without the permission of your parents.

    TELL your parents right away if you read anything on the internet thaqt makes you feel uncomfortable.

    REMEMBER that people online may not be who they say they are.  Someone who says that "she" is a "12 year old girl" could really be an older man.

    In case of emergency dial 9-1-1
